MOE Show Rules

Understanding the promotional benefits of livestock shows, NALF established and coordinates the breed’s Medal of Excellence (MOE) program which annually recognizes point leading animals, sires, dams, exhibitors, and seedstock producers for their success in the show ring annually.

The MOE program awards points for placings in MOE recognized and sanctioned shows including: 4 Level 1 shows (National Western Stock Show, Fort Worth Stock Show, American Royal Livestock Show, and North American International Livestock Exposition) as well as 10-15 Level 2 shows.
